We were alerted by North Yorkshire Police to help locate a missing man who was reported to be having breathing difficulties in the Danby Beacon area.
In appalling weather conditions we deployed to a RV at Danby Beacon in order to instigate a search.
As team members were arriving at the RV the missing man was located on moorland near to the RV by members of the Police and team personnel.
The man was taken to a place of safety and the team gladly got out of the pouring rain and returned home.
The incident lasted around 60 minutes and involved 12 team members.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
